She has been named to Miss Cheesecake of 1951 by stars and stripes, a service paper. The Hollywood icon earned $17 million last year, 52 years after her passing. (04/17/1951)(AP Photo)

Marilyn Monroe 1926-1962 - the actress and sex symbol was married three times, rumored to have had numerous affairs and made as much as 30 films. The final years of Monroe's life were marked by illness, personal problems, and a reputation for unreliability and being difficult to work with. The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of barbiturates, have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a 'probable suicide', the possibilities of an accidental overdose or a homicide have not been ruled out. She died at the age of 36.
